The integration of several sub-plots, the detailed portrait painted of the primary character, the ins and outs of planning the destruction of a corporation, and the final surprise ending, very much an "out of the box" solution for an impossible situation, gave me great satisfaction, to the point that this author joins Robin Cook, Dick Francis, and Michael Creichton as a trusted provider of light entertainment.
AMAZON.COM READERS REVIEW
A very good read, exciting and fast paced.
John Sanford always does a great mystery - this is a "Kidd" mystery not the "Prey" series.
A very interesting and well-written book about computer crime. The two main characters, Kidd and Luellen, are apparently in another book of Sandford's which I haven't yet read. The story is fast-paced and an easy, enjoyable read.
This is the first of the Kidd series. Kidd and his partner LuEllen are professional criminals. Fast-paced action.
"A gripping, ultramodern novel... fast-paced and suspenseful." -Chicago Tribune
"Fast-paced action, high-intellectual puzzle-solving, dandy characters... if you start guessing outcomes, you are fooled." - Minneapolis Star & Tribune

John Sandford is a great writer and all his books are good.
I just couldn't get into this one. So I guess I don't have much to say!

Everything goes fine until..................................
Johns Sandford is a wonderful author. Not sure why I waited this long to read this series. The Lucas Davenport series is one of my favorites.
great book had trouble putting it down .very fast paced
Another great Sandford book
Having read all of John Sandfords Prey and Virgil Flowers books, I wanted to pick up on his earlier work as John Camp. I found "Fool's Run" completely enjoyable, the story engaging, and as I turned the last page I was wishing for more. If you like Sandford, be sure to read his work as John Camp, as well, you won't be sorry. Which book or series to start with isn't 100% defined, however, in the latest prey installment, "Silken Prey", we encounter Kidd and Luellen once again, as major characters, so it was helpful to have read "Fools Run" 1st. Sandford is artful in intertwining characters from his different series into his various plots, he includes enough background to make sure the reader is not lost.
This time, their playing field is on the cutting edge of high-tech corporate warfare. Kidd, the computer whiz, and LuEllen, the thief, are hired by a defense industry corporation to destroy its business rival through computer sabotage and espionage. If Kidd and LuEllen can pull it off, they'll reap millions of dollars. One mistake, and they could spend the rest of their lives in prison. Everything goes according to plan as the technological takedown unfolds. But their string of successes turns into a noose when the ultimate con artists get conned...
